COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brooklyn Lager, the Brewery's flagship label, is New York's "hometown" beer, brewed to a pre-Prohibition recipe that dates back to the days when Brooklyn was the brewing capital of the East Coast. Brooklyn Lager has won numerous awards. Wrote Michael Jackson in the Simon & Schuster Pocket Guide to Beer: "The dry-hopped, fresh, flowery, firm, flavourful, Brooklyn Lager **-*** started well, in 1988, and has gained in character since."

Pour boucler le week-end, achevons le avec une Brooklyn Lager bien fraîche. Arôme : Directement on sent que cette American Lager a un profil malté, combiné par des houblons floraux, citronnés. Apparence : Un bel ambré avec des reflets doré avec un col mousseux très léger, pétillant qui glisse rapidement sur le verre. Goût : Le malt caramel se marie à merveille avec les 3 houblons Hallertauer Mittelfrueh, Vanguard et Cascade. C’est rond en bouche, une texture résineuse, avec une carbonation légère, le finish est amer mais moins qu’une Bitter traditionnelle. La gorgée finie, le malt caramel reprend possession de votre bouche, le côté sucré se développe et l’amerture toujours présente vous fait saliver. La Brooklyn Lager est pour moi la bière de grande soif par excellente, elle casse les stéréotypes de la bière américaine de type Lager sans goût, ou peu charismatique. Celle-ci est une magnifique revanche et devient pour moi une référence dans l’Amber Lager.

IPAgutten79 (621) - Skui, NORWAY - FEB 1, 2015
Mørk gylden med lavt skum. I aromaen er det malt og sitrus. Smaken er stort sett som aromaen. Mild bitterhet. Tynn konsistens.

HippyHop (310) - Quebec, CANADA - JAN 28, 2015
Pour is light caramel with a fluffy white cap that sticks around nicely. Nose is honey and grain and faint flowers. There’s nothing complex here, but this is a really nice, clean, drinkable lager, with a nice bit of bitterness on the finish.

355 cl systembolaget. Känns märkligt att folk ger denna ganska trista öl så högt betyg.

Astograph (6) - Santiago, CHILE - JAN 27, 2015 does not count
Bottle. Pours a clear light amber with a fast white head, small bubbles. Light aromas of hop and honey, strong aromas of malt and earth. Excellent balance between sweetness and bitterness, followed by a perfect dry finish. Wonderful beer.
